Pengerusi DAP, Karpal Singh tanpa berselindung dan dolak dalik telah mempertikaikan tindakan dua orang pemimpin kanan DAP menerima darjah kebesaran yang dianugerahkan oleh Sultan DYMM Sultan Selangor dan DYMM Sultan Perak.

Berikutan itu kedua-dua pemimpin DAP yang dimaksudkan itu ialah Speaker DUN Selangor, Datuk Teng Chang Khim dan pemimpin DAP Perak, Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham dikatakan telah diarah untuk memulangkan kembali gelaran kebesaran yang diterima itu.

Penganugerahan gelaran Datuk kepada Speaker DUN Selangor itu adalah hasil cadangan Menteri Besar, Khalid Ibrahim manakala Ngeh Koo Ham pula menerima anugerah tersebut pada 2008 selepas diajukan saranan oleh Menteri Besar Perak ketika itu, Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin.

Jelas sekali DYMM Sultan Selangor dan DYMM Sultan Perak sentiasa ikhlas dan tidak memilih bulu dalam memperkenankan penganugerahan gelaran darjah kebesaran kepada sesiapa sahaja yang difikirkan layak sebagai tanda penghargaan.

Pun begitu, sekiranya seseorang individu atas kapasiti peribadinya sendiri menolak penganugerahan darjah kebesaran itu atas sebab-sebab tertentu, ianya tidakpun menjadi isu pun jika itu kehendaknya.

Bagaimanapun dalam banyak-banyak parti politik di negara ini, hanya DAP sahaja yang satu-satunya menetapkan dasar larangan kepada anggota partinya daripada menerima sebarang anugerah kebesaran dari Raja-Raja Melayu.

Sedangkan lain-lain pemimpin parti politik agak berbesar hati dan berasa bangga apabila menerima pengiktirafan dan penghargaan sedemikian.

DAP seperti sengaja mahu menonjolkan keangkuhan dan kebiadapan mereka. Dari situ pun sudah nampak belang-belang rasis DAP.

Ia juga sebenarnya satu perbuatan yang sengaja menghina dan memperlekehkan kedudukan Raja-Raja Melayu sebagai ketua pemerintah di negeri-negeri Melayu.

Kononnya dasar larangan tersebut bertujuan untuk menjamin ketelusan sebenarnya hanyalah retorik kosong untuk menyembunyikan sikap rasis yang telah lama menjadi budaya DAP.

GEORGE TOWN: The gloves are off in this DAP fight with chairman Karpal Singh squaring off against two party strongmen over the issue of their acceptance of awards carrying the title of “Datuk” while still being active in politics.

Karpal has rebuked Perak DAP chief Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham and central executive committee member Datuk Teng Chang Khim for breaching the party’s long-standing principal on receiving awards while serving as elected representatives.

The veteran leader said the rule for DAP MPs and assemblymen was agreed upon since the mid-1990s

“Both Ngeh and Teng went against the principle and I am unhappy,” Karpal said here yesterday.

Asked if they had given any explanation to the party over the matter, he said only Ngeh had but he considered his clarification as “unacceptable”.

“Only members who have retired or are no longer politically active should accept such titles.

“From now on, the party will take action against those who do not follow this ruling,” he said.

Karpal said the rule was to ensure that party leaders practised transparency and not gain by getting titles, stressing that it was not meant as an insult to the Malay Rulers.

“In Penang, the DAP-led state government has honoured several leaders who had retired from active politics,” he said, citing the example of the late Chian Heng Kai who was once Bukit Mertajam MP, former Batu Lanchang state assemblyman the late Tan Loo Jit and former Berapit assemblyman Wong Hang Yoke.

In an immediate response, Teng, who is also Selangor State Assembly Speaker, questioned the existence of such a rule.

“There is no such policy. Ask Karpal to show the CEC minutes,” he said.

Ngeh was conferred a Datukship in 2008 while Teng accepted his in 2010.

Earlier, Karpal, who is Bukit Gelugor MP, berated former DAP vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim for making allegations that the party insulted the Rulers by rejecting the conferment.

“Tunku Aziz’s statement which was carried by a newspaper is a half-truth account perpetrated for the sole purpose of putting me in bad light in the eyes of the Malays in the country.”

“He lied by uttering something baseless. I do not think this was a reckless statement (by him). Instead, it was carefully crafted,” Karpal claimed, adding that DAP had made a mistake by recruiting Tunku Aziz.

The member of the Kedah royalty resigned from DAP on May 14 after disagreeing with Pakatan Rakyat’s decision to be involved in a Bersih rally.

Meanwhile, Wong, who retired from politics after his showdown with former Penang Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon in Tanjung Bungah in 1999, said he no longer held any post in the party.

He was conferred the Darjah Setia Pangkuan Negeri (DSPN) during Penang Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas‘ 72nd birthday in 2010.
